Today MINI USA is confirming what we reported last spring; the value priced Oxford Edition is coming to the Countryman. The MINI Oxford Edition was originally a hatch only variant packaged for value and only sold to college students. Now MINI USA is opening the floodgates up and making it available to everyone and adding it’s most popular model to the fray.
Availability of the MINI Oxford Edition, which was previously offered exclusively to current and recently graduated college students, and active duty and recently retired U.S. military, was initially expanded to jump-start sales of the hatch.
Our Oxford Editions are all about offering MINI models with incredible value, at an attractive price, without giving up style, substance, and MINI’s fun-to-drive characteristics.Mike Peyton, Vice President, MINI of the Americas.
The New 2020 MINI Countryman Oxford Edition – More Value, Versatility and Fun
MINI’s most versatile model which appeals to a wider range of customers, the new 2020 MINI Countryman Oxford Edition is available in limited numbers as both Cooper and Cooper ALL4 variants.
Offering our Oxford Editions to everyone and adding the versatile Countryman Oxford Edition are additional means of making MINI more accessible to more customers. A MINI Oxford Edition is the perfect choice, maybe now more than ever, for value-minded customers who want to engage with our brand, and be part of the MINI community.”Mike Peyton, Vice President, MINI of the Americas.
This special edition comes with all the standard equipment of the Classic Trim, which includes leatherette upholstery, 6.5” display with Bluetooth, rear camera and rear park distance control, 7-speed dual clutch transmission and a panoramic sunroof. On top of that, the MINI Countryman Oxford Edition comes standard with upgraded 18” wheels, anthracite headliner, heated front seats, automatic climate control, and a choice of six exterior colors, including metallic paint options. Given what some of these options cost stand-alone, it’s incredibly impressive for the price.
Speaking of the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the 2020 MINI Cooper Countryman Oxford Edition is $25,900. The 2020 MINI Cooper Countryman ALL4 Oxford Edition has an MSRP of $27,900. Pricing excludes the $850 Destination & Handling fee. This means the MINI Countryman Oxford Edition is specially configured with $5,500 worth of optional equipment as standard at no additional cost. The real value is of course the front-wheel drive model which will likely suit the vast majority just fine.
The MINI Oxford Edition – 2 Door and 4 Door Hardtops Remain True Value-Leaders
Alongside the Countryman, MINI USA is also offering the MINI Oxford Edition 2 Door and 4 Door Hardtops. The two represent MINI’s most value-oriented offerings, and come standard with the MINI Connected Infotainment System with a 6.5 inch high resolution screen with Bluetooth, rear-view camera, park distance control and MINI Teleservices and emergency call. The MINI Oxford Edition hardtops also come with upgraded 17” wheels in silver or black, automatic or manual transmission, dual-pane panoramic moon roof, heated seats, and a choice of six exterior body colors.
The 2021 MINI Oxford Edition 2-door Hardtop is priced at an MSRP of $19,750. The 2021 MINI Oxford Edition 4-door Hardtop is priced at $20,750. Pricing excludes the $850 Destination & Handling fee. This means the MINI Oxford Edition Hardtops are specially configured with $6,900 worth of optional equipment as standard at no additional cost. Again an astounding value given how prices have risen over the years.
MINI Oxford Edition models are offered though participating dealers with a simplified “what you see is what you pay” pricing that was made possible by not involving added incentives or gimmicks. 2021 MINI Oxford Edition Hardtops are currently available at participating dealerships across the U.S. The new 2020 MINI Countryman Oxford Edition variants have been available at participating dealers in limited numbers since this July.
The MINI Oxford Edition Hardtops were first launched for the 2018 model year and focused on offering active and recently graduated college students a special value-oriented opportunity to own a MINI. In 2019 MINI USA then expanded the Oxford Edition to active and recently retired U.S Military personnel as a way to support them in honor of their service.
